You know, honestly, I was going to try to write a relatively thoughtful review of Drake’s new single, “Summer Sixteen,” which he premiered during his OVO Sound Radio show on Apple Music earlier tonight. But after listening to it on repeat for the last half hour, I’m having a little trouble forming coherent thoughts — my mind has essentially become a raging tornado of blaring air horns, the fire emoji and this Vine.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a certified banger on our hands here. It’s a visceral, petty, chest-pounding, table-clearing declaration, the kind of song that makes you want to hop in your car, roll down all the windows, and blast the shit out of it while cruising through the city. Stream it above or buy it on iTunes, and be prepared to hear it constantly through at least the end of August.
Drake’s fourth album, Views from the 6, drops in April.
